Hey Bd;

I heard the Kinks wrote this tune about Jimmy Page:
The Kinks: Mr. Big- from Sleepwalker

Article I read on this was talking about how Randy California later in life was reduced to playing Sitar
at an Indian Restaurant in exchange for food.
Zeppelin did a lot of 'uncredited sampling' of American bluesman so I guess it should be no surprise they cut corners. Although Stairway to Heaven is like the holy grail of FM radio, that law suit has got to be worth some big coin.
One thing about Garcia he was always trying to bring musicians up with him both figuratively and literally.
